Former St. Louis Cardinals IF Tyler Greene DFA'd by White Sox

Former Cardinals infielder Tyler Greene has been designated for assignment by the Chicago White Sox.

Greene, who was hitting .222 this season in 54 at-bats, was let go to make room for Gordon Beckham who is ready to come off the disabled list. Beckham had been out since April 9 when he broke a bone in his hand while taking a swing.

After being cut loose by the Astros in spring training, Greene signed as a free agent with the White Sox as infield depth. It's always a bad sign for your career when you're cut by that awesomely awful team in Houston.

Greene, 29, hit .246 in 2012 for the Astros in 126 at-bats after being shipped off by the Cardinals. He hit seven home runs but somehow managed only 11 RBIs. He also swiped nine bases in 11 attempts.

From 2009-12 with St. Louis Greene hit .218 with nine homers and 47 RBIs.
